    Good but more battery life please.

    Does what it needs to do. Easy to operate with the app. Shame that the battery life is only about an hour.

    Excellent product

    Very happy with the product. We now have three of these cameras arranged around our house which gives us confidence that we can monitor the house from anywhere in the world.


    There is a very wide choice of home CCTV cameras on the market. Some cheap some not so cheap. The British Gas Hive system is in the not so cheap class but if you want quality then this is the one. The camera has an ingenious system of mounting, magnetic. Fix the base plate then you can angle the unit in a multitude of positions. Infrared at night gives a clear picture even in pitch black. Hive have a complete range of goodies that can inter grate with the system from central heating, lighting, intruder alert, water leaks plus outside cameras. See it, set it and adjust it all from your smart phone.

    Absolutely briliant

    Easy to set up and very easy to use. The different settings are useful to swap between when required. The image quality is good and I would highly recommend this!

    Best camera I’ve ever bought!

    I bought this to use as a baby monitor and it’s by far the best camera I’ve ever bought. Notifications actually work and (depending on your internet connection) are on time! Was bought to replace a cheaper camera and was definitely worth every penny!

    Attractive and discrete product that nearly does it all

    I already have a number of different items from the Hive product range, including one Hive View Camera. I liked that first one, so bought this second one. I like the quality feel and design, it's very discrete in the bronze/black model (that depends on your overall colour scheme, as, if you had an all-white kitchen, for example, then the other colour would be better. I found it simple to set up, and, once 'found' by my phone, it hasn't gone off-line. Should you need to reset your broadband router at any time, or you experience a power cut, it soon 'reappears' in the system. The video quality - live, or playback - is excellent, and you can adjust the detection modes to cover most contingencies. I don't subscribe to 30 days' video storage, but it's there if you want to pay for it. Like a few things in the Hive range, it's a learning curve with the support team, as they're not always on top of things when there's a problem. However things are improving, and there is always an offer to assist, if they see a post outlining any issues. The camera is supposed to link with other Hive products - for example, you are supposed to be able to tell it (via 'Actions') to turn a light on when it detects motion, but I still find some of this flakey in practice, and not fully reliable. It can make use of other third-party applets, like IFTTT, and I've found these to be more reliable than native Hive links. The only slight 'annoyance' is that, while like all the various Hive products, you can see and control them from your mobile, and which includes being able to 'see' your camera view live or recorded, this latter doesn't happen on your desktop or laptop. You aren't currently able to monitor their output without your phone. I use an Android phone and the camera, and indeed all the Hive products, work seamlessly with this OS. Final advice, though - check prices daily, as they vary quite considerably. Personally I don't think the camera, good as it is, merits the top price you'll see. Aim for at least a third off, then it starts to become viable.
